Octavo, pp. approx. 400 (each section has its own numbering), extensively illustrated w/ b/w diagrams and drawings. Numerous appendices, index, study questions at end of text.
An amazing "work in progress" for the emerging light rail and railroad industries. Multiple references are made to developments in 1883 and 1885, leading us to believe that the text may be pre-1900. In its comprehensive treatment of the industry, it give a wonderful "snapshot" of all aspects of "tram-dom" as it emerges into the new century.
